hi it would be useful to know your budget but here's two:

this one is the realistic minimum spec in my opinion although there are people using gtx 760's with i3's believe it or not (good for them!) - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intel-i5-6400-Quad-Core-3-30GHz-8GB-120GB-SSD-GTX-1060-6GB-Gaming-PC-VNMB-/201631850414£654.99 delivered with 3 year collect and return warranty

with this one the quality of the image is visibly much better and you can experiment quite a bit with supersampling just for a start, this really is for the enthusiast though. The pc above will do everything you need for a good while but this is a beast: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intel-i7-6700-Quad-Core-4-00GHz-8GB-120GB-SSD-GTX-1080-8GB-Gaming-PC-VNMB-/201617546832£1219.99 delivered with 3 year collect and return warranty

the company use MSI core components and are very down to earth to deal with. If anyone is wondering whether the 2nd PC I linked is worth it well put it this way the difference is SD to HD, the graphics are so much better.

check out the Oculus/Vive reddit's as there are new ways to improve the VR image but you would need the 2nd PC to really use them. Enjoy

I agree with the above, I'd go for a GTX 1060 minimum as VR really hammers the PC and it's really important to have a smooth consistent framerate. I went for a GTX 1070 and so far it's been working very well with VR.

With this generation of VR I'd consider a Samsung Gear VR if you already own one of the phones. Well worth it for a far more affordable price.
